Articulatory Phonetics in the First-Year Spanish Classroom.
Arteaga, Deborah L.
Modern Language Journal, v84 n3 p339-54 Fall 2000
Reconsiders the general question of the role of articulatory phonetics in the second language (L2) classroom and reviews the phonetic presentation in 10 recent first-year Spanish texts. Proposes a phonetics program based on the notion of a learners' dialect, then measures the phonetics of the textbooks against a learners' dialect. Argues against the current trend reflected in the texts. (Author/VWL)
